No time for a bed quilt? Try a quick bed runner (blog hop + giveaway!)

Quick Change blog hop

No time to make a bed quilt? Perhaps you’ve dreamed of making one—or you have one (or more) in progress—but you can’t see the finish line from where you are.

Quick Change - Refresh a Room Fast with Quilted Bed RunnersKeep that bed quilt going; we’re cheering you on! But in the meantime, you can get that beautiful quilt-on-a-bed look without finishing a big bed quilt.

How? By whipping up a bed runner! Bed runners pack big impact in a small package. Complete an eye-catching bed runner in a fraction of the time it takes to finish a bed-sized quilt, and quickly take the feel of a bedroom from dull to dreamy.

Easy to sew, easy to store, easy to change for a whole new look: that’s the focus of each project in the new book Quick Change: Refresh a Room Fast with Quilted Bed Runners. Start making your dream bedroom a reality now with 13 mostly make-in-a-weekend runners in four distinct color palettes. Plus, photos throughout show how adding a few decorative pillows and accents can completely make over a room. So easy!

It’s blog hop kickoff day for Quick Change, and we’ve got some fun planned for you. As you visit a different blog each day, designers will be sharing details about their runners, Q&A style. Let’s take a peek at the projects from the book—and at the name-drop-worthy list of contributors!
